Macclesfield residents are being asked to nominate your favourite Lottery funded project to be recognised in The 2011 National Lottery Awards.


The National Lottery has invested more than £2 million to good causes in Cheshire over the past year and now it is asking these projects to enter the awards to be recognised for their work.


Every week in the UK, Lottery players raise £28 million for Lottery funded projects, benefiting communities, places and people across the country. The National Lottery Awards were set up to celebrate how the projects put the money to good use and to recognise the hard work done by the people behind the projects.


If you are involved in a Lottery funded project in Macclesfield or you know of a project that has had a positive impact to you personally or the local community, The National Lottery Awards wants to hear from you.


The award is divided into seven categories; arts, charity/voluntary, education, environment, health, heritage and sport, reflecting each of the areas of Lottery funding.


All finalists will have the chance to win £2000 and be nationally recognised at the event broadcast on BBC One later this year.


If you know of a Macclesfield project you'd like to see celebrated at the 2011 Awards, you can visit to enter the project. All entries must be received by Friday 18th February 5pm.
